Easter Sunday Prayer

Lenten Prayers


by Cynthia Langston Kirk

Life-bringing God,
Easter morning erupts
with the mystery of life overcoming death
and the joy of encountering our risen Lord.
You revive the alleluias
and give us reason to sing again.
Help us shed our preconceived notions
and risk living the resurrection.
May this holy miracle
guide how we nurture those who are weaker,
how we live and vote as citizens
and who we claim as neighbors.
Lead us on the Christ-path
where walls are dismantled,
relationships are repaired
and Love is both way and destination.
Lead us on the Christ-path
where the lilies bloom
and the Prince of Peace reigns.
Let us go into the world
looking for hearts that are wrapped in burial shrouds
that we might sing them back to life by your grace.
We pray grateful for this new day
to serve as resurrection people. Amen.

God is at work

Discovery Weekend was an incredible opportunity and a great learning experience. I got to see the kingdom of God work within all the kids, which showed me how present Christ is throughout our lives and the amount of love and forgiveness that can be found in others.”
